Baths

Carol & Bill

We wanted to replace our Jacuzzi bath, which was out of date and released black particle every time it was used. It was also noisy and seemed to be a liability for a 2nd floor leak. This was replaced with a modern freestanding tub. Our small shower was enlarged to allow us to easily shower together. The sinks were replaced with large freestanding units and new cabinets were installed to replace a small closet. We also wanted to change small floor tiles to a more enticing design. These were replaced by wide plank floors in the bathroom and bedroom. Finally, we also wanted white beadboard on the lower walls to offset the floor and to give the room a custom look. All of these were accomplished with the help of expert design assistance and installation.

There were a few major obstacles from our perspective. These included changes to the hot water baseboard heating system, moving drain and supply lines into the wall for the sinks, new exhaust vent through the roof and installing new plumbing for the bathtub. The biggest task was perhaps enlarging the shower area and installing the plumbing, subway tile, and the beautiful glass enclosure. The entire room also has an attractive and functional lighting system.

From our perspective, the cleanout of the old bathroom was a major job that was handled without damage or excessive dirt into the rest of the house. The area was cleared after each day’s work. All of these new construction tasks were handled as scheduled by very courteous employees who appeared to be specialists in their respective trades. The inability to use our bathroom for a period of time was the biggest disruption to our activities, but it was worth the wait.
